Beware the dark circles of demonic doom where itty bitty teddies are sacrificed to appease the devil!

All images are by myself, and of myself, except for the teddy, which is not myself, but I've had him since i was five and his name is Polar because he's a polar bear with a red bow tie and a hole in his bottom to puppet him all round. That, and my blankie and stuffed horsey from when i was born... still have those too.
Snorkel Salad, Fucking Myself, where do the dead belong, Fresh Fish, Ascend, we are here once again, Dan, light rest, into dreams, we only have this moment, 1891, any of my skate pictures, there are no choices, convergence, feather cs2, legislature, outside influence, up the wall, hidden beneath, what now, just yesterday... maybe others.
lol if we lived in the same city i might find the chance to be so in love with you -- but as always, all the amazing and gorgeous women who actually seem to take an interest in me -- are hundred of miles away
This is a really powerful and symbolic representation... I wonder your thoughts at this moment, or perhaps when this idea dawned on you. Your images hold this incredibly surreal quality that I wish I could capture sometimes. Your work is haunting, and I love it so much... I feel like I could never do them justice by a compliment.
thank you, love, i am so humbled to be admired by you I don't specifically remember what gave me the idea, I shot this on Dec 16th 2008 while I was still at photo school, then recently while sifting through a ton of old backups I found this and decided to take my greatly matured photoshop skills to the table and just play again, like it was before I got into school, when all i knew about photography is 'if I rotate this dial, the picture gets darker'. that's what all my early stuff before sept 08, then i learned technical bullshit and it killed me.
Thank you so much for your well thought out responses and your passion about this image! I really love it too! Also, I don't think I've ever known your name, or if I have I have a horrible memory.
